One of my colleague was struggling to find a model and serial number of installed Hard drive in the laptop. I was thinking to remove the hard drive from laptop physically ( oops!) , and I stop him to do that and showed him how cool is the PowerShell.
I teach him the below PowerShell cmdlet to find the hard drive model and Serial number ;o) .
Get-WmiObject win32_diskdrive | Select Model,SerialNumber
